Thanking first God for His abundant grace, and for his family, faith and freedom, a political battle came to an end two nights ago in Wisconsin for the first governor to ever survive a recall election. And while we don’t get overly political on Stand Up For The Truth, we do talk about what effect our challenging political climate is having on the Church at large.

Some of the movements that threaten free speech from the pulpit, family and marriages are out there in the open for all to see and react to. But there are challenges behind the scenes that you’ll want to know about. So this hour we’re going to take a look at those. A little later in the program, Dr. Jake Jacobs, author of the book Mobocracy: This is what Democracy Looks Like, will be here to share why these threats aren’t going away, and what you can expect in the months ahead.

But in this first segment, we’re checking in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action. She is a warrior for families and marriage in Madison Wisconsin, not an easy environment in which to stand up for Truth.
